Ne-Yo is loving his life as a celebrity father. The singer recently shared pictures of him hanging with two of his kids, Mason and Madilyn, at work.


“When they come watch daddy work,” Ne-Yo shared online. The recording artist went on to tell his Instagram fans how much he enjoyed seeing his kids that day. “I needed these faces today,” he said. The recording artist also shared a video clip of Madilyn and Mason taking the dance floor with dad. “It’s in the blood,” Ne-Yo wrote. “It’s in the DNA. WE ALL GOT IT!”

Ne-Yo also has an incredible spirit of charity. The celebrity father recently announced plans to sponsor a coding camp in San Francisco as a way of giving underprivileged children an outlet this summer.

“There are so many kids out there wondering what they can do to make their mark, wondering how they can succeed, especially in a supercharged area like San Francisco and Silicon Valley,” Ne-Yo said in a press release regarding the camp. “By bringing these kids in, [and] showing them how much fun they can have—how much they can learn—I think we will [be] giving them a great leg up.”

Eight students will be selected from Holberton School to undergo a three-week program that includes HTML, JavaScript, and CSS training. “Holberton students come from all walks of life—from musicians, to a cashier at Trader Joe’s, to high school graduates,” Sylvain Kalache, co-founder of Holberton, revealed. “After Holberton, they end up working at top Silicon Valley companies, like Dropbox and LinkedIn. But, they also save the world from asteroids with NASA,” he explained.

Ne-Yo is the proud father of three kids. He and his wife, Crystal Smith, have one son named Shaffer Jr. Madilyn and Mason are Ne-Yo’s children with book author, Monyetta Shaw. Check out Crystal’s beautiful Father’s Day tribute to Ne-Yo below!
